Windows 7 Taskbar: A Step Backwards Aesthetically


looking at the screen shots and having tried it for a few minutes, i think one aspect in particular is a step backwards aesthetically. that change being the windows Start button icon. when Vista came out with the circular start button that slightly overlapped the rectangular taskbar i thought that was quite a nice choice. it was an interesting choice, and also helped to make the Start button stand out a little, as the Main function button for the operating system.

the new Windows 7, has the circle entirely surrounded by the rectangular taskbar and becomes lost in the taskbar. this is a really bad choice, and in most ways seems to be a step backwards from Vista.

i hope microsft reconsiders this change, or at least can come up with a different way to accent the Start button as Vista did.

that's all

windows update and action center

I don't understand why windows update is not included in the action center. Isn't the action center supposed to include everything to make your PC safer and more secure when I open Action center I would expect windows update to be in the Maintenace section, but instead you have to backtrack to the 'System and Security' in Control Panel and then 'Windows update'. Does the action center still scan for windows updates When I finally did find windows update(by accident) I had about 16 pending updates, one of which was critical and the action center said everything was okay...no need to do anything.

My opinion about windows 7

When I saw 7 RC was out, I downloaded the 64bit version. I burned it on DVD and all was fine till I got stuck in installing, it just freezed. So I wasted like few DVD-s to burn this windows 7. Finally I found out that the issue was in downloaded file. I downloaded new one and installed and im so freaking happy with it. One good thing is that you dont have to spent hours for finding these drivers. But there are still issues with audio driver, the front jack is just not working with default ones and the microphone needs noise supression option also. I installed my manufacter drivers and it all worked well. The weather gadget needs wind also. In overall im really happy, all goes smooth and fast!

Why MS still use DVD's for windows installation?

Microsoft we are in 2009 , why are the main windows installation files distribution method is still DVD's why not flash memory Here is why i think why we need to shift to flash memory: Flash memory is faster and more reliable than DVD's (Bonus: no noise & less power to use) 4 GB USB drive cost only 8 US$ now (my company gives 1 GB USB drives for free)Some slim notebooks, and almost all netbooks don't even have optical drive modern BIOS/EFI firmwares supports USB boot I always download the ISO, mount it to virtual drive ( i use Virtual CloneDrive) and follow the steps here to install from my USB drive. ( I don't need to burn dvd and waste money) .

Closing/Opening windows

Do you noticed that when you close or open window it's not closed/opened smoothly but in "two steps" Look carefully and you will see that there is some delay between window is semi-closed/opened and closed/opened. It can be problem in my side but i have latest graphics drivers and Core 2 Duo should be able to close windows smoothly . BTW i'm using latest 7048 build...Write your experiences, i hope that it isn't problem in me.

windows 7 Beta 7022

i just got it. this thing rocks... to me it feels much more smooth. im nto getting the same random freeze up with folders from time to time i got in 7000. so far no BSOD,No bugs. no incompatible drivers or anything. im going to try daemon tools in about 2 hours to see if it works yet. torrent clients now go past 10 kbs... and this version seems faster and better over all. if you want to get it then i suggest you do so even tho it is not an official release it is fully real and worth it. just dont install it over your old windows 7 or you will never finish the installation. you need a brand new install.

Windows 7 , the last windows version?

Well, from looking at the versions of MS-DOS, you can see that version 8 was the last version of DOS, but was striped down. So, you could say that MS-DOS 7 was the last more or less. So, just wondering do you think that Windows 7 will be the last version of Windows I think it is possible. So, what are your opinions

windows 7 and firewalls antivirus

Hi all, I have installed windows vista then windows 7 in 64 bits version in order to get my computer memory higher. They work fine ! I had trouble with both system when installing a firewall or internet security third party (my network config : wireless connection through a gateaway, wifi extender, PLC based network...). I tried f-secure and gdata, the first is not working with windows 7, the last screwed my connection. De-installing these softwares and re-activating windows protection solutions solved the issue. As far as microsoft web protection will keep my computer protected, I will be happy and will not buy/install other software anymore. If I get corrupted, I am wondering wether I will find a software compatible with windows 7 to protect my PC without wastring a week to install it...
